A SAD TRUTHFUL WRITE
NO ONE CARES ABOUT, WHATS IN THE CARDBOARD BOX ANYMORE.
WITH THE HOLIDAYS COMING, THOSE WON'T BE PRESENTS
OCCUPING THEM BOXES,
BUT THE NEEDY OF ANYTHING ONE CAN SPARE.

|This is sad, but very well-written. There are so many of these people on the street. Many just walked by without paying much attention to them.
I always looked at them and imagining them once they were being a baby, showered with love in a mother's arms, and did they or their mothers know that they will be in the street later on in their lives?
I often feel sad for them.
